Roof Options

SBC Building Systems screwed down roof panels are AZ55 Galvalume® made from 26-gauge steel with a yield of 80,000 PSI and a corrugation depth of 1 1/4″. The strength of the steel together with the high PSI yield and deep corrugation create tremendous protection against strong winds and heavy snow loads. The PBR panels are wind rated to meet Florida code (FL-3722-R1). Colored panels are coated with AkzoNobel TRINAR® (KYNAR 500®/HYLAR 5000®), energy efficient, sustainable metal finishes.

Zeus Shield® Standing Seam Roof

Architectural and trapezoidal 24-gauge standing seam roofs (SSR) are also available in a variety of popular colors. The patented technology on our standing seam roofs provides superior performance with regard to wind and weather protection as well as cost efficiency without affecting the aesthetic appearance of the roof. The seam geometry and seaming methods virtually assure that your installed roof will perform as designed at minimum cost.

Roof Covering Systems

The Roof Covering Systems consist of the exterior roof panels, panel fasteners and clips, roof accessories, sealants, mastics, trim and flashing, as required.

Internally Manufactured Roof Covering Systems are: the Panel Rib Roof System and the SSR Standing Seam Roof System. A variety of alternative architectural panels can be used in conjunction with the product to provide optional exterior finishes and appearances.

The Panel Rib Roof System provides 36″ [915 mm.] wide net coverage and has 1 1/4″ [30 mm.] high major ribs at 12″ [305 mm.] on center with minor ribs spaced between the major ribs. Sidelaps are at least one full major rib. The roof underlying rib utilizes a supporting member-bearing edge. The roof overlapping rib utilizes an anti-capillary groove. All panels are continuous from eave to ridge except where the length exceeds 41’ [12,500 mm.] or otherwise becomes prohibitive for handling purposes, in which case, endlaps are provided. Endlaps are 4″ [102 mm.] overlap and occur at a support member. Panel Rib Roof Panels are 26 gage as standard with 24 gage available and are one of the following: Galvalume steel, Galvanized steel G30 coating designation with or without SP20 or KXL pre-painted finishes.

Sealants, mastics and closures are manufacturer’s standards. They are provided at panel endlaps, sidelaps, rake, eave, transitions and accessories, as required, to provide a weather resistant roof system.

Exposed fasteners are self-drilling, stainless steel-capped with integral sealing washer. Color of fastener heads matches the roof panel finish, when specified. Location and quantities of fasteners are manufacturer’s standards based upon building design, weathertightness and/or finished appearances.

Optional roof accessories include: Panel Rib Tuf-Lite Translucent roof panels, APEX 20 round gravity ventilators, 9″ [229 mm.] or 12″ [305 mm.] sectional or continuous ridge vents, or Panel Rib curbs/flashing units.

SSR Roof System

The SSR Standing Seam Roof System consists of Standing Seam Roof Panel and interconnecting panel-to secondary structural SSR clips, sealants, mastics, closures, trim and/or flashings necessary to provide weather tightness and finished appearance. Optional roof accessories and optional insulating systems are available, consisting of 3″ [77 mm.], 4″ [102 mm.] or 6″ [177 mm.] of blanket insulations, with or without high density polystyrene thermal blocks or Superblock for additional over-the-purlin insulation or a maximum of 2 ½” [64 mm.] rigid board insulation. The Standing Seam roof system may be used with all Framing Systems and secondary structural members (including Transbay joists) with a minimum roof pitch of 1/4:12 [0.53:10].

SSR Standing Seam Roof Panels provide 24″ [610 mm.] wide net coverage having 3″ [77 mm.] high major ribs formed at the panel side laps. Side joints have factory-applied sealant and require field seaming of the side lap joint after the panel has been positioned on the roof. The seaming is accomplished with an electrically operated seaming machine available through SBC Building Systems. All panels are continuous from eave to ridge except where the panel length exceeds 41′ [12,500 mm.] or otherwise becomes prohibitive for handling purposes in which case, panel endlaps are provided. Endlaps are 4″ [102 mm.] overlap and are located near the supporting purlin member. SSR roof panels are 24 gage Galvalume steel as standard. Click here to view the available colors.

SSR Panel-to-roof purlin structural attachments are made with SSR clips. SSR clips are provided with movable tabs which interlock with the seamed SSR panel ribs and provide for at least 1 5/8″ [41 mm.] of panel movement in either direction from center of clips to compensate for thermal effects.

Sealants, mastics and closures are manufacturer’s standards. They are provided at panel endlaps, sidelaps, rake, eave, transitions and accessories, as required, to provide a weather resistant roof system.

Exposed fasteners are self-drilling, stainless steel-capped with integral sealing washer. Color of fastener heads match the roof panel finish when specified. Concealed fasteners are self-drilling with the type and size as required by roof secondary structural members. Location and quantities of fasteners are manufacturer’s standards based upon building design, weathertightness, and/or finished appearance.

Optional Roof Accessories include: SSR Tuf-Lite Translucent roof panels, APEX 20″ 508 mm.] round gravity ventilators, 9″ [229 mm.] or 12″ [305 mm.] sectional or continuous ridge vents, SSR curb/flashing units, DekTites, Pipe Supports, Uplift Straps, and Walkways.

High Expansion

UltraRidge provides a stationary ridge cap that will allow a fixed eave roof system to float underneath the ridge flashing. By utilizing a flexible, silicone membrane the ridge is watertight and impervious to adverse weather conditions, specifically exposure to ultra violet rays. UltraRidge works with most standard ridge purlin spacing including those used on SBC Zeus-Shield ZS-T24, ZS-A18, and ZS- A16 roof systems. UltraRidge will also work with roof slopes of ½ to 12 through 3 to 12. Minor modifications or small changes are required for use on steeper slopes. Designed to allow for 6” thermal movement – 3” uphill and 3” downhill. Movement is restricted only by the roof panels’, clip slide allowance. The Zeus-Shield roof system offers clips with 3” movement. Without affecting the basic package, UltraRidge can easily adapt to a longer slide clip travel, such as ZS-T24 wind uplift clips. Because the ridge flashing does not flex with expansion and contraction, a ridge ventilator can be installed directly to the ridge trim. Ridge lights are another natural application.
